The Netherlands Media Art Institute, Montevideo is pleased to annouce
an open call for the Spring 2006 round of its Artist in Residence
(AiR) program.

The AiR programme at the Netherlands Media Art Institute aims to
support the exploration and development of new work in
digital/interactive/network media and technology based arts practice.
The residency provides time and resources to artists in a supportive
environment to facilitate the creation of new work that is produced
from an open source perspective. We encourage a cross disciplinary
and experimental approach. This is a practice based residency
designed to enable the development and completion of a new work.

Our focus for this open call is on open source interactive
installation art, in which the following occurs:
interaction between tools and/or software
interaction between tools and artwork
interaction between audience and artwork

The Netherlands Media Art Institute offers an open environment with
technical assistance and an active advisory board which will give
feedback and support in technical, conceptual and presentation
issues. There is access to studio and exhibition equipment,
technical support from the Institute's staff and production help from
interns. The technical staff is specialized and has good contacts
with programmers of the following software, a.o.: PD/PDP, Blender,
Dynebolic, Linux. We expect the artist to have knowledge and insight
in the technical realization of the concept.

It is integral to the mission of the AiR program that artists
participate in presenting their work in a public form appropriate to
their project. This can include gallery installations, demonstrations
of research in progress, panel discussions, on-line projects, or
multimedia performances, in addition to open studio events and
workshops. For this reason we ask that artists include in their
proposal possible examples of how they might like to present their
work publicly.

At this moment the Netherlands Media Art Institute provides in travel
costs. It doesn't provide accommodation for artists living outside of
Amsterdam. However, we are willing to help the search but cannot
guarantee a place for living.

Application using the application form can be send to:
